This was my first time using Rover and I was very pleased. Melissa was excellent; she deserves her high ratings. We did a meet-and-greet first at her house the week before so that my dog, Missy could meet Sasha, Melissa's dog. I chose Melissa as I wanted Missy to have company but not be with a sitter who took in multiple dogs; and Melissa only takes in one dog at a time. It was also ...

Melissa was awesome, and our dog loved her stay! Melissa sent me videos and pictures of our pups playing and hanging out. Amazing host, and location for dog sitting as she has plenty of space and a yard. Hoping we can book her again soon!!!

Local Dog Lover - Missing my pup

Hi, my name is Melissa. I had the best dog ever, Sasha, who recently passed away in November 2018. You'll see her in a ton of my pictures (she looked like a big cuddly wolf mix).
I dog sat when I had her and she loved having friends over! Now that she's gone, I'm finding myself feeling lonely but not quite ready for another dog of my own. So instead, I'd love to take the ...

5. If your dog is crate trained

When Melissa watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I can take your dog on a walk through my neighborhood, with leads to a trail in Carrollton's Greenbelt Park. Your dog can also run around in my backyard!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Depends on your dog's training and preference. Your dog's crate or dog bed are options. Dogs have been known to jump onto my own bed with Sasha and I as well!

Time I'll spend with your dog
During the week: I will take your dog out in the morning before I go to work, sometimes on my lunch break, and after I get off work. After work, they can play in the backyard and run out their energy!

During the weekend: My schedule is flexible but varies - Refer to the above statements but know that I can likely spend even more time with your dog on the weekend.

Also, as mentioned, my roommate helps out a lot and will also be spending time with your dog!
